There Are Ways to Manage Your Migraine at Home

If you are experiencing a throbbing or pulsating pain at the side of your head accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sounds, you might be having a migraine. 

Migraine can last for hours even days. It can even affect your daily activities. Causes of this type of headache are not yet established, but genetics and other environmental factors can play a role. There are several triggers for different people such as: 

  • Hormonal fluctuations: changes in the hormones can trigger migraines, especially for women going through menopause or pregnancy. 
  • Alcoholic drinks 
  • Stress 
  • Food and medications 
  • Sleep and weather changes 

 

Doctors might suggest some changes in your lifestyle and medications to address migraine. Your doctors might also advise you to get neurostimulation devices to stimulate the trigeminal nerve or other parts of the brain to prevent migraines from occurring or alleviate pain. 

Aside from over-the-counter prescriptions, you can manage your migraine headaches through some home remedies such as: 

  • Avoiding certain food: foods containing nitrates and tyramine should be avoided, including cultured dairy, and other processed food. 
  • Ginger: it can reduce some of the symptoms of migraine such as nausea and vomiting. 
  • Magnesium: you can get your magnesium through almonds, seeds, peanut butter, oatmeal, eggs, and milk. 
  • Stay hydrated 
  • Quality sleep
